I NEED BOTH POSITIVE AND NEGATIVE OPINIONS AND CRITICISM NOW!! SOCK IT TO MEEE!!

by Tye Hord 8 replies
Hi there everyone!

For anyone who hasn't had a chance to correspond with me, my name is Tyler Hord and I am a beginner with a dream of freedom and wealth.

I started my dream when I decided to become a distributor for a company called Xocai (SHO-SIGH). I decided to have a website built by someone so I could have a very professional look and feel to the website, however; this has proven to be a very long and annoying process as the webmasters had all kinds of problems with their content management software plus a bunch of other things that are pointless to mention.

So now I'm here 3 months!! later, and I need peoples opinions and criticism of all kinds! positive negative or just your own thoughts.

I am also learning right now about SEO so if anyone would like to help me out with some pointers on SEO and some effective tactics that you use currently than feel free to share, or PM me.

I want to thank everyone ahead of time that were able to respond to this thread.

THANK YOU!

Here is the link to my website Intense Chocolate Business - Welcome -- to get passed the first page you need to fill out the opt in form, no worries it only sends out one thank you email, you won't be bombarded with spam, neither will your email be given to anyone else.

    Sorry, Tye, old guy alert. I would probably not stay at your site because I have to get too close to the screen to read the small print.
    My only observation so far.

      I'm not sure I know what the website is about. It tells me I can work from home, be a healthier person etc. But it doesn't tell me how, or why or what the whole thing is about. Chocolate? Are you offering me a job, a franchise or do you just want me to eat chocolate (happy to oblige)?

        As with rosetrees, when I see a page that says next to nothing and then asks me to join a mailing list in order to actually see the site, I just move on to the next site.

          What you need is WebCeo. Take the free certification and then get the paid certification.

            Hi Tye,
            Name is James and I have been developing websites for over 15 years.

            1. If you waited 3 months for that then the so-called developers should go out of business. I really hope you did not pay over $50

            2. The site is not very professional at all, it looks like a pre-thrown together template with no thought or feeling at all. I know a few 5 year olds that could do better.

            3. Red and Green .. Does not Match, no matter how much you are trying to get someone attention.. It dont match.

            4. No SEO at all on the site ..

            5. I have no idea what you are trying to sell me or pitch to me.. Really I see the site but I have no idea what it is about.

            6. The text is going everywhere big and small and then centered .. Very poor formatting.

            7. I can submit a fale email, sorry but you said look so you just got a fake request or whatever the form was for..

            8. No link on your email, which means I have to waste my time to copy and paste and if I need to do that, well I am going someplace else.

            9. I see no information on how your business is going or if you actually tried the product yourself..

            10. Return Visitor - I type in AA then I get this page - Intense Chocolate Business - Welcome
            Well why do I have to say I am a return visitor ?? Because that is the only way I see comp plan and etc.. Otherwise I see nothing I am bored and I leave 2 seconds after I get there..

            Sorry for being so harsh but you did ask.. I am really a nice guy but I gave my honest opinion as you asked.

            James

              Hi James,

              No worries on the harshness this is what I wanted, after reading some of the replies, i now realize I need to change a lot and come up with a new plan of action....

              The reason i have the returning visitor part of the page is so you don't have to fill out the opt in form everytime you want to go back to the page.

              James I am going to redo all my content for the landing page, and touch on other areas where its messy, and i will improve the formatting, when this is done I'm going to PM you and if you could be as harsh as you were this time, i like to know what people are actually thinking when they are looking at the website, i dont want the nice guy approach.

              And thank you to everyone who responded your opinions are greatly appreciated and now that i look back at it i see what you all mean...I WILL BE BACK!

    Hi Thy,

    It's good that you are already starting. I'm here about a week and I haven't purchased my dot.com yet.

    Some comments on the page:

    1. the Green background, brown heading and black xocai title doesnt fit with me. It was too much contrast that I can handle. As for the Black xocai in the title with brown background, you have to really look hard to see it.

    2. Wrong spelling : First I want you to watch this short video and "than" fill out the form

    I think you mean "then".

    3. Also the part where we enter our email : you will receive an email in your inbox.

    I recommend changing it to : Please check your inbox..or just plain old "you will receive an email", some people advices others to also check in their bulk mail folder, since it may be tagged as spam ;-)

    I was and am impressed that you are able to materialize a project like this. It must have been a real effort on your part. I know coz I'm still on the way to doing what you've just accomplished. Keep up the spirit. I might join you since I really like chocolates.

    As for the search engine optimization:

    1. You could write an article about how great anti-oxidant chocolates are.

    2. Post it to www.ezinearticles.com about a day for it to be approved, put in a link to your website on the bottom of the article or on the sig part.

    3. Create a blog in blogger etc. link with the ezinearticle - optional.

    4. go to www.socialmarker.com and submit the url of your ezinearticle there. In your first use, you will have to register to all of the bookmarking sites there. so it will probably take several hours. Once submitted your article will have a higher search ranking. Some say in the 1st page. I am not sure of this.

    Read other post here, search using the search box in the upper right. There are a wealth of info here.

    I wish you success!
